It must be very disheartening for a football player to fumble the football while being wide open for the winning play, to find the enemy has intercepted the ball and brings it in for a celebrated touchdown. Dropping the ball when everyone is counting on you and every eye on you is not fun. How miserable the moment must be.
Knowing there is still time on the clock, to get the win, is always comforting. Time to come back for a win for the good guys. Keep on going forward, keep with the game in spite of failure or disappointment. One messed up play does not make you a bad player.
There will be times in our Christian walk that we will fail to deliver, we are human, we are dust and can never live perfect enough for other people because we are not perfect. We will have fumbled plays, We will be a disappointment to someone, We will make wrong choices, but the game is not over when we mess up, it's only lost when we quit. As a Christian we must not only forgive others but forgive ourselves. Go forward for the win in the Spiritual battle. Lift high His royal banner as a winner for Jesus. Striving to live the life Christ wants you to live, through preparation, study and meditation of the Word.
As Children Born Into God's Family
We ARE, on the winning team. It's been fixed since eternity began.
For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again: but the wicked shall fall into mischief.
